Everglades!

Destination: Florida Everglades

To be a friend of the Everglades is not necessarily to spend time wandering around out there.  ~Marjory Stoneman Douglas

I have always wanted to visit the Everglades.  Well now we have had the chance.  The HUGE gators here were numerous!

This gator had to be over 1000 lbs.  He was massive.

It really was peaceful.  But I was constantly on edge waiting for one of these guys to jump on our air-boat.  Luckily our guide was brave, and had a gun just in case.

Some of these gators were camouflaged and you couldn’t see them until you got right up on them.  Then again, some were out in the open, sunning themselves.

Being me, I was messing around and whoops, my sandal flew into the air and landed in the glades.  I just knew that a gator was going to snatch it up and take it away.  Luckily the guide turned the air-boat around pretty quickly and was able to get my sandal back.  It was funny, but I WAS glad to get it back.  One shoe would have made for a long day!  🙂

Until our next adventure~
